On behalf of the Government and People of the Republic of Uganda and on my own behalf, I welcome you to the Ministry of East African Community Affairs (MEACA) website.
Established in 2007, the Ministry is responsible for steering Uganda’s regional integration agenda in accordance with the objectives of the Treaty for Establishment of East African Community.
We are thus pleased to share with you, through this website, what we have achieved and what we are working on towards the final achievement of one East Africa. Our core responsibilities are aimed at realising the vision of the EAC of “a prosperous, competitive, secure, stable and politically united East Africa”.
It gives me pleasure to state that we have signed and ratified the three of the four Protocols that constitute the pillars of the EAC integration; the Customs Union, the Common Market and the Monetary Union. I want to call upon all of you, our stakeholders, to embrace the opportunities provided by these Protocols as we embark on the final journey to Political Federation.
This website will keep detailing the milestones achieved in the integration agenda. We have also established a Resource Centre at the Ministry. It is a one stop centre for all information on EAC integration. I encourage the students, business community and the general public to visit and attain more information as we coordinate the process of having one East Africa.
I wish you the best as you navigate through this website for information that we are sure will be of immense value to you in respect of EAC integration. Please do not hesitate to contact us on the address provided for any inquiries.
Maj. Gen. (Rtd) Kahinda Otafiire, Minister of East African Community Affairs
